snowing ...

This is what we woke up to this morning
and it is still coming down
HEAVILY ...
Before our breakfast,
the squirrels and birds needed to be fed
making peanut butter sandwiches on brown bread
was on the menu :-)
 
as the birds began to arrive
I grabbed my camera
 
the snow was so deep they had trouble moving about
 
oh sweet sparrow ♥
with just a tad of suet on his beak 
 
our garden bench
 
and pergola
all snow capped
and while I stood at the window taking photos
I realized that someone very sweet had found a safe spot out of the snow and wind.
We always leave some pieces of furniture out for this very reason ~ to provide some shelter when the weather gets rough.
 So happy our little garden bunny took advantage of it ♥
 ~Have a safe Saturday~

Those are some sweet little creatures you hang with my friend! Don't you love having all the birds come in? Today the crab apple trees were full of cedar waxwings and they were gorging themselves. We have a lot of stray cats that like to winter in our yard because of the shelter here and they tend to hang out the most under Dale's tack shed and the horse stalls. Sometimes I get quite the scare when I go out because they are all wild and when I don't know that they are there and then hiss at me,you should see me jump! I always feed them on the deck of the studio but they prefer the south side of the tack shed. In the spring they all seem to go back to the river beds. Not sure why, but the hunting must be better there. They sure won't tame though.
Wishing you a wonderful Christmas season!
hugs from here...

hi Julie Marie ~ my hubby & I were taking turns making the sandwiches :-) like you, I can't imagine life without Nature ♥
thank you for your kind comments!

Deb said...

hi June ~ yes, I love having them all around. And the cedar waxwings - aren't they gorgeous! We had a crowd of them in our yard one year and wished they would return, but spot them on our hikes with Archer. Love their little masks :-)
I bet you do get a scare with the cats "singing" to you :-) so nice that you make sure they have something to eat xoxo
